: how? a california teachers' union producing a video cartoon called tax the rich. >> over i'm ric time rich peopld they weren't rich enough so they came up with ways to get richer. the first way was with tax cuts. they say why should i care witht other non-rich people. i can hire people to work for me for less money than taxes cost. then i can keep the rest of my taxes for me. meanwhile, instead of investing in things most people would accuse and instead of providing jobs that paid people well like they used to, rich people found they could make more money on wall street. wall street is a place where money makes money. here the 1% made money so fast, they devoted more and more record to it. they took some of that money and sent it far away where workers had no rights to produce things that workers used to produce here. when ordinary people wondered why rich people needed so much money, the 1% said don't worry. this is good for you, too, because it will trickle down from us to you. some day you'll be rich, and then the rules we made for us will be your rules, too. >> okay. now, what was

[laughter] i think he definitely qualifies as the first american indian president. lou: and so he is declared. you may remember the president has been called the first gay, female, jewish, and asian president; however, without question, the title of america's first black president belongs to bight. -- bill clinton. up next, the obama ultimatum. tax the rich, or he'll take the country over the cliff. vote on the facebook page, do you agree president obama's ultimatum on higher taxes are responsible for driving us over the cliff if that were to occur? we're talking with monica

faced down the soviet union and had 500,000 combat troops in the field? the sequester isn't stepping off a cliff. it is taking one step back from the cliff. now, the tax increases, however, are a very different matter. without intervention, the federal tax burden will balloon 1% at the stroke of -- 21% at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, taking $2,000 to $3,000 from an averaged family. the house passed legislation to protect our nation from such a calamity but mr. obama vowed to veto it and the senate killed it. . instead mr. he obama tells us he'll veto any plan that stops taxes going up on all those very wealthy folks making over $200,000, who he says need to pay their fair share. i suppose fairness is in the eyes of the beholder. the top 1% earned 17% of all income but pays 37% of all income taxes. but that's beside the point. the fine point of it is that a lot of these very wealthy folks making over $200,000 aren't very wealthy, and they aren't even folks. they are 1.3 million struggling small businesses filing under subchapter s. our small businesses produce 2/3 of the new

of union members who like to be there and on the republican side there's a lot of overzellous supporters on our side. i think that alone brings different dimensions to voting locations. not eave state or every polling location but definitely something we hear voters say i don't feel comfortable walking past or walking in or whatever that is, and that shouldn't be the case for anybody. i don't think it's -- it's not a massive problem. not in the double digit percentages. but nieminen feels -- anytime anyone feels intimidate, that's wrong. >> i know we're going to go back and forth on the -- one step that comes back to me is there's roughly -- closed the books in florida but roughly 300,000 more voters this time than in 2008. 6200 precincts, 5300 polling locations. clearly less early vote day. but even these polling locations -- they're not jam packed 12 hours a day. i do agree that the lines are longer. i just don't necessarily think that it was because of regulations or because of someone trying to nefariously suppress the vote. i think it was literalie just underprepared officials and n
. democrats and the labor unions are bankrupting this state. if the democratic party is so good, then why are we bankrupt? don't you think it's time the unions, instead of spending billions of dollars on political campaigns give that money back to the membership so they can maybe pay their own wages and tax bears and people like me that live on fixed incomes don't have to be taxed out of our homes and lose the money we have worked hard to make? guest: you have worked hard. number one, i cannot comment on the california situation. i just don't know enough about it. reports are that things are starting to turn around a little over there. it's tough to pass a budget if when you have the fiscal majority requirement. second, how we got here, it's not unions. wages for americans have been going down the past 115 years. people are not keeping up with inflation. the average american worker has taken a 2011 pay cut when you compare what they made 10 years ago to what they're making now. -- $2000 pay cut. on the spending, i disagree with you. the republicans in congress in particular have opened up
by john cornun of texas and pass there had on november 26th. hundreds of union members and their supporters are protesting michigan's decision yesterday to rush through right-to-work legislation. the state house and senate approved measures that will prohibit unions from forcing non-union members to pay additional fees. republicans claim that that will boost the economy and jobs. but democrats are calling it an attack on workers' rights. governor rick snyder has previously said that right-to-work is not on his agenda but he does plan on sign that next week. back on capitol hill steven spielberg is slated to attend "lincoln." poems president obama is hosting the event at the capitol visitor senator. after the screening, spielberg and louis along with 3 other actors will hold a q and a session with senators and their guests. more "bill press" is coming up after our break. see you then. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have
of the soviet union and its intentions. president truman and his staff and glued together the containment strategy that stayed in effect through general eisenhower's presidency and leader until bill wall berlin came tumbling down and the soviet union imploded on itself. the strategy worked. as we get this is important that we put together a national strategy. there's not one single threat out there but many terrorism, force, state against state challenges, and that's what we must do. and we must nurture those in the war colleges in the state department that have their strategic vision of the ability to glue together a good strategy and make sure that it does come to pass. so, i and hopeful we can solve the problem with the the congress can come together as we did in many of the tough choices, and if you watch the comedians from time to time, you will see larry the cable guide, and let me take a phrase from him to the congress. get er done.
